Thank You For Your Support!

Dear Supporters of Generations For Peace and #HerStepsCount,

We cannot begin to thank you enough for your support for women and girls through #HerStepsCount. Generations For Peace will continue to fight tirelessly for women and their ability to climb their own “mountains.” Women play a crucial, yet underappreciated, role in their communities and peacebuilding. Lama, in climbing and summiting higher and higher mountains and preparing to climb Mount Everest, represents the ability of women to overcome their obstacles and achieve their goals, proving their worth and contributing meaningfully to their societies. 

This campaign alone has raised $2,706 for Generations For Peace’s programming in 50 countries around the world, thanks to your contributions. Using your donations, we can help give a voice to women looking to make their mark in peacebuilding at the grassroots level through mentoring women peacebuilders.

Lama is determined to continue showing the world what youth and women – particularly those from the Middle East – are capable of, and would like to say:

"We can climb the highest mountains one step at time. Each step we take makes a difference. I cannot thank you enough for all the support and donations for this campaign. Remember #HerStepsCount, because your steps count as well.

Please continue to follow HerStepsCount as Lama continues her journey on Instagram: herstepscount"

Once again, thank you all for your contributions to and support of Generations For Peace. As we train youth peacebuilders around the globe, and encourage them to train others in their communities, we reference our mission with three simple words: “Pass it on!”

Thank You For Your Support of My Sport Story

Dear supporters of Generations For Peace,

Our team cannot be grateful enough for your donations to the My Sport Story project, for your support of youth around the world, and for your support of our programs that harness the energy of sport-based games and power of team dynamics to change behaviors and relationships among youth living through conflict and violence.

Generations For Peace believes sport has the power to shape and even transform young people's lives, and contribute to development and peace. At Generations For Peace, sport is used to promote understanding and unity among young people living through some of the world's most intractable conflicts. 

Just one sport-session could instill lifelong skills for peacebuilding in youth, whether that be learning how to work together, or overcoming a challenge within the rules of a game. GFP's Sport For Peace activities are proven to increase capacities to manage conflict non-violently. Each aspect of our sport-based activities fosters skills that translate directly into peacebuilding in the real world. To date, we have positively impacted more than 524,000 children, youth and adults in 50 countries.

Through this brief campaign, you have helped us raise $450, which is already helping us ensure youth can take part in #SportForPeace, regardless of the conflict that surrounds them.

From the bottom of our hearts, and on behalf of our 11,000+ volunteers around the globe, we thank you for your support.

With gratitude,

The Generations For Peace Team

HerStepsCount Project Update

Dear supporters of HerStepsCount,

We wanted to update you on our progress since our last communication. We were excited in March to highlight the work of #HerStepsCount via International Women's Day. With that announcement alone, we were able to raise $570 over the course of a few days!

It is thanks to supporters like you that Generations For Peace is able to continue to implement global programmes that empower women to build peace in their local communities, and that allow women like Lama to reach even greater heights.

To learn more about our programming, check out our website and social media below.

 

On behalf of Generations For Peace, thank you again for your support of HerStepsCount and our programming.

With gratitude,

The Generations For Peace Team
